Movie Info

When a gangster, Eddie Kagle (Paul Muni), is murdered by his childhood friend and business partner, Smiley Williams (Hardie Albright), he's sent to hell. There he meets Nick (Claude Rains), who tries to get him to return to the living to take over the body of Judge Frederick Parker (also Muni). Kagle agrees, enticed by the prospect of seeking revenge on Smiley. But Kagel's attempts to tarnish Parker's reputation backfire, and when he finally confronts Smiley, his frustration has peaked.

Audience Reviews for Angel on My Shoulder

  • Apr 13, 2015
    Paul Muni's a little bit of fun with his take on the Mob/Italiano/New Yorker-circa-1930's pastiche and Claude Rains his cynical foil - no less than the devil himself - as a crooked mug returns from Hell to upset the applecart of an upstanding Joe Judge Guy. Anne Baxter only has to be sexy ... no problem for her. It's an enjoyable ride.

    Pretty decent movie that kept my interest throughout as I wanted to kind of see what was going to happen next. Interesting characters and an interesting storyline with decent acting really kept this movie going at a good pace. Even the end kind of surprised me.

    Although the tape I rented was of bad quality, I was able to see that this was a great movie, I loved it. It's a twist on the story of the guy who dies but gets another chance by going back to earth. It's really worth checking out.

    Not the best old movie i have ever seen, but pleasant enough for a boring weekend. Anne Baxter is the highlight.
